Peanut-Butter Nut Bread
This recipe is from the Culinary Arts Institute Encyclopedic Cookbook of 1950. It was posted in a thread about old vintage cookbooks. Next to the recipe is a black and white photograph of the bread and a description that reads: Youngsters sing with all their might. Hooray! It's peanut-butter bread tonite. This recipe belongs in the Southern region - the home of Georgia peanuts!

MY PRIVATE NOTES

I used whole wheat and Sucanat (a more natural form of brown sugar). I see now why they say to spread the butter on the bottom of the pan! I melted it and when I poured the batter over it, the peanuts all got shoved to the side. I think it got a little brown on the sides and top, but my DD was supposed to take it out of the oven and she just turned it off and left it in there, so I'm sure it cooked more. She liked it anyways! :) Would try again following directions better and using a little more peanut butter (all natural).Reply
Wonderful. I tried this in my four mini loaf pans. It was so neat to have these little loaves of goodness. I shared one with the neighbour and he managed to save a piece for his wife... but just barely. He loved it. The kids and I loved it. My fiance didn't get any! I will be making this again. But I had a problem with the topping sticking in the bottom of the pan. That may have been my error. And I don't know if I should have taken them out of the pans right away. I let them cool for a few minutes before I tried. I just scooped it out and "arranged" it on top. No problems. I also topped it with a basic drizzle for a little more eye appeal. Thanks for this recipe. I can't wait to make it again and serve it to my father who LOVES peanut butter!Reply
